    Question I need a recommendation for 1/2 day deep sea fishing

    I would like to take a client and his wife for a 1/2 deep see fishing trip in the morning week of Sept 28. Monday.

    I am a novice and need a recommendation of a good crew.

    I would appreciate any help and honest comments, just a heads of who you liked. I am not looking for negative comments on charters you did not like, I don't believe in bashing .

    Thank you

    Frank

    No Problem

    No problem, I've emailed driftwood and melina contacts from their web sites.

    Also, you may or may not know of a place but if you do, where would you suggest for a good breakfast or brunch

    This is from my hubby--the more people you have the less time each one gets in the chair-depending on the size of the boat.

    He has used Melina several times. Whacky Wahoo cooked it and charged $10 for a full meal. Driftwood also cooked for us-don't remember the price. Make sure you are very firm with the amount of fish you want to keep for yourself!!!
